bumble hole visitor centre
a welcoming ditty
We are a small charity all made up of volunteers called “Bumble Hole Conservation Group” sitting at the side of the canal in Windmill End, Dudley.
"Bumble Hole" is at the heart of the industrial Black Country. Located in Netherton in the borough of Dudley. It is an area of natural beauty, nature reserves, waterways wildlife havens and history.
In addition to working outside on the reserve, maintaining the beauty of all of this and keeping it litter free and easily accessible, the volunteers have also taken over the running of the Bumble Hole visitor centre. Inside there is a lot of educational information relating to the area and its rich history. There is also a book shelf for people to swap or leave a donation, and a small shop where we sell hot and cold drinks and snacks
To welcome visitors to the Bumble Hole Visitor Centre, one of the volunteers has written a welcoming ditty:
Friends and members, new and old
Here's a story to behold.
25 years since opening the centre
One and all come in! Please enter!
July 22nd we celebrate
We open at 10, so don't be late!

The volunteers work hard, all year through
We love what we do, and we do it for you!
